Best OP and ED from My Top 20 Favorite Anime

 Hey guys! The idea for this blog post hit me out of no where!  I was watching Haikyuu and jamming to "Ah Yeah!!" by Sukima Switch mourning the loss of "Imagination" by SPYAIR when I decided oh! I am always talking about music in regards to why don't I share my top 20 anime and the best OP and ED regarding those shows. Now, there are a few shows that don't have multiple OP but they are still good for their respective show. While I was researching this, I made a discover and I'm not sure how I feel about it. There is a live action of the series Say "I Love You" and apparently the main theme for the show is sung by One is this in the same way the Red Hot Chili Peppers had the main theme for the OG Death Note live action or is this in a way that the One Direction song fits with the movie theme? I haven't seen the Live Action yet, but I definitely want to check it out. So let's hop into it because I spent like 2 hours going through the OP and ED of 20 different shows. I literally jammed to all of the AOT OP because why not?! 

If you don't know what my top 20 anime are at this point, you will now. I think I may get hate for the placement of some of these shows, but it is my opinion. Typically when I do top lists, I go from end to beginning, but since the anime portion is already common knowledge amongst KAC readers, I am going from 1 to 20. It may also be noted that several of these songs have been featured prominently in the past on top OP and ED lists and even top favorite songs lists in general. Also, there were a few shows that I couldn't decide between some I chose both. Please also note, this is NOT my top 20 anime OP and top 20 anime ED that is an entirely different list. Enjoy.

Phew, that was a lot of music. I tried to include as many videos as I could, but for the shows that I couldn't find a video of the OP or ED, I included the show PV. Like I said, each and every one of these shows is a favorite and a lot of these were really hard to narrow down. However, I would like to explain the Attack on Titan one. While Sasageyo is an excellent OP, I think that we would not have gotten Shinzou wo Sasageyo!, Jiyū no Tsubasa, and Shoukei to Shikabane no Michi without Guren no Yumiya. Linked Horizon has definitely left a mark on anime history for sure with their part in Attack on Titan. If you had to do a list like this, what would your favorite openings and endings be from your top favorite anime? It isn't an easy feat but I definitely want to see what you all can come up with. 

That is all I have for you at this time, until next time. 

Ja ne!
